I get no calls from top companies on Linkedin. Are there few PM senior/staff jobs in Facebook or Google or in top startups? Or me working in microsoft discourages recruiters?

      This. Microsoft PM has probably the worst brand value of PM at any of the large tech companies. Don’t expect a lot.

      Can you elaborate on why this is?

      I think the msft traditional PM roles are being handled by SDMs in most places these days. Whereas the industry has moved towards TPMs and Product Manager (not Project manager)

      Yea pretty sure there was a massive thread by an amazon pm last week about just this, where everyone postulated it was just that amazon PMs were undesirable: Check out this post! "Tepid interest in product managers from recruiters on LinkedIn? 🤔 (Product Management)"

      You'll find that getting a Product Manager job (closer to MS PM) will be very hard. Recruiters aren't going to want to believe you that you do features. Instead you'll get shoe horned into pure project management.

    It's not Microsoft. I get recruiter contacts from those companies and startups and others. All. The. Time.

    I suspect it's combination of your PM position and what your profile says you've done.
